Facilitating Understanding of a Catch-22 Concept: Teaching Exponential Change with Logo.
Weller, Herman G.; Johnson, Vivian
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v11 n3-4 p275-87 1992
Describes a unit for teaching exponential change in a noncalculus physics course by having students write recursive procedures in LOGO to graphically represent linear and exponential change. Summarizes the experience of implementing the unit in a segment on radioactive decay. Modifications to the unit are suggested for teaching exponential change in other courses. (Author/MDH)
